Burlington home prices: Need some help understanding why they appreciate?

Property prices are constantly moving up and down. Typically, house values appreciate in the long term. But, in real estate there are no guarantees.

When your property appreciates you have a bigger asset to borrow against, and you'll generate a greater profit when you sell. But how do you know what you're buying now will appreciate over time? Property values in Burlington go up and down for different reasons. The most important factor is that you select a REALTOR® in Burlington who recognizes the factors that drive local prices.

The economy is believed to be the greatest factor impacting real estate appreciation. Naturally, mortgage rates, employment, business growth, government programs and several other national factors have a noticeable influence on your house's value. But the most influential factors that determine your home's value depend on the local Burlington economy and housing market.
